Please pardon my super-slowness .... fourth grade homework and testing has got me in a funk, hence very little knitting.  BUT, I am FINALLY finished with the body of the bag and am ready for the sides.  Is there anyone willing and/or able to help me understand the pick up stitches part?  I went to the knittinghelp website but -- and this is a silly question i know --  it doesn't explain whether or not you cast on a row first??? how do you get started?  i also have the big vogue reference book but again, maybe i'm missing something.....

thanks!

Hi Seneca,

I know its confusing sometimes when you are not sure of something... I hate that. I have a link for you, but you must do exactly what it says, no more and no less. And before you start, I think you deserve a nice glass of wine, don't you?

With the right side of your work facing you, stick your needle through a stitch where pattern tells you to pick up.  Anyway stick needle through one of those stitches, holding needle and yarn in your right hand, and work on your left.  Wrap the yarn aroung the needle, kinda just throw it over, all while the needle is stuck through the stitch.  Then finally, pull the needle and yarn through stitch.  If you through the yarn over properly, you would've just picked up a stitch.  And you do that for however many stitches the pattern tells you to.  It's kind of hard to explain, and a visual definitly would be most helpful here.  Do you have SNB?  That's where I got the premise from, and the rest kind of fell into place, cause it was similar to crocheting to me, without a hook.

I sure hoped I helped, and didn't further confuse you.

EMMS, Necia, Everyone:  Can you feel the love?  I am sooooo thrilled.  With a combination of your links, suggestions, and my big Vogue book......I DID IT !!  Admittedly, I had to start over because I misread the pattern and wound up with too many stitches (not the five at the end).  I neglected to decrease on EACH side of the right side stitches (7,9,11....).  No problem.  I just used my life-line technique.

Sooooo......I'm done with one side of the bag (yippeee!!!) and now I'll be working on the other side.

Thanks so much for your help.  You don't know how much this does for my knitting confidence.

And Sylvie:  Thanks so much for such a beautiful little pattern (from a person who thought they'd be doing scarves and hats forever).  And thanks for the tutorial about the crochet joining sides.  That's my next step .....

A few others did that too... did we all blank out at that same section or what?

To Loisgriffinwannabe or Emms,

Thank you so much for introducing this pattern for knitalong. It is a beautiful little purse. I made one for my friend. She loves butterfly, so I tried to incorporate a butterfly theme into it.  It took me a while to finish it ... the knitting was alright, blocking was not a favorite activity of mine, and the sewing ... sigh ...  the latter almost killed me for I am not a sewer!

My friend loves green and purple. The purse itself is green ...


... with purple butterfly motifs lining ...


... here is a close up of the butterfly button ...


She used it for church today, and another friend loved it. I will make another one for the other friend. I suppose if I continue making this purse, I'll ended up a sewer!  Wink

Gorgeous purse.  And, what a great color combination the lining made.  I'm not a sewer either, but you did a way better job than me.
